    Good news! It really is a great product.

    Sometimes it's worth trying new things.

    Yep, very worth it. In a month's time, with DAMF and some new maintenance tricks, I've got a whole new bag

    Glad to hear you like UWWA. It's a great maintenance product and sometimes just takes a few minutes as long as your car's not too dirty.. I like going outside just before sunrise and giving the car a quik spray & wipe down. Or after dinner as the sun sets. It's amazing how fast it can be done, and how great the car looks afterwards

    I like your dedication - I often do the same thing!

    I usually have to sneak out though - so I don't get accused of spending too much time cleaning the car.

We can go out for a drive without her makeup and she looks fine. If I want to take the black one out, it is three or four hours in the "bathroom" to get ready.

    I love the look of GCCP too. Unfortunately we don't get GCQW or GCQD here in Australia so when the need arises I use UWWA and UQW.

    The depth of colour really works for me.

    I thought UWWA had Ultimate Wax (synthetic) in it not carnauba? It says it has HYDROPHOBIC wax protection? If so, Top Gear you should go over your beautiful car with GCQW after you use it

    Rich, it was news to me, too, and I do use GCQW for re-waxing, GCQD for dressing/lube/prep.

    Check the list above posted by Michael Stoops. UWWA (D115 is the bulk Detailer version) and UWW both contain carnauba (UWW even says so on the bottle), despite being branded as "Ultimate" products (which many of us seem to associate with "anti-carnauba"). IMHO, Meguiar's puts that "Ultimate" label on way too many products, like Ultimate Black, Ultimate Wax, UWW, UWWA, and others. Also, the term "hydrophobic" can be applied to a great many products and chemicals, and the term "wax" should be used only for carnauba. But, I digress.

    Both UWW and UWWA contain some carnauba, which for us carnauba guys means boosting, and for the synthetic guys, just means deeper gloss. For example, Gold Class liquid/paste Wax is also a blend of carnauba and synthetic polymers. Trust me, I was skeptical about UWWA, but I've used GCQD & GCQW to waterless wash and touch up, etc. UWWA is far superior for a "quik wash & wax" product with no streaking or clouding. It's changed everything for me from day to day, and I just can't believe how well it finishes with such easy effort

    Re: Which Products Contain Carnauba?

    Now that's why I'm on this forum every day because I'm always looking for something to help my detailing exploits. I didn't know UWWA had carnauba in it because it has Ultimate in the name. Will it give my car the same dark dark " black hole " look that I get from my 50/50 mix of GCQD & GCQW?
    I went to the first show of the season and there was a car identical to mine in the same class but I could tell the owner used a synthetic wax on it. My car won a trophy and that one didn't; and I think the carnauba definitely gave my car the winning edge.
